We visited as part of a group tour and the restaurant, on Pickering Wharf, was ideal. The food- I had chicken, mashed potatoes, salad and my wife had baked scrod, was excellent. Service, even for a large group, was prompt and attentive. I'd love to go back at Christmastime to see the décor.

We were steered here by one of the staff at Salem Waterfront Hotel and were grateful for the tip. Our group had a lobster roll, haddock fish tacos, marinated tenderloin, and a jumbo shrimp cocktail. Everyone was very happy with the food and the service.

We had the pleasure of lunching at Finz. The atmosphere is charming and inviting. Our food was excellent. We tried the crab cake sandwich, chowder and vanilla bean salad. Scrumptious. Our server could have been more attentive. Dirty dishes between courses were not removed from the table. We needed to ask for water refills. I would love to return and... More

We made our reservation online the night before and had no problem getting a table for two. We ordered an appetizer of warm goat's cheese drizzled with balsamic vinegar, served with warm bread. It was delicious! Our entrees were very good as well. Service was excellent. We can't say much about the view as the table we were sitting at... More

Wow a bowl of some of the best clam chowder I have had! The owner was really nice and was so helpful. The tuna tartare was a great light dish to go with the chowder! If you are in Salem go enjoy.

On a vacation journey from Ohio to Maine to Boston, we stopped in Salem and ate at Finz. This was a little bit difficult to find, but after we circled the area a few times, we parked in a nearby parking garage and walked right to the lovely restaurant. Our server was Jennifer who not only took good care of... More

Waitress was very knowledgeable. Food was excellent (scallops and the fresh fish). Atmosphere was great! Then Zach, the manager, visited our table to insure everything was ok but when he came back the second time to just chat that completed a wonderful dining experience. Just go there!!!

The location, the service and the food at Finz make it a real good reason to visit. Went there on a beautiful Sunday in late September this year. Outside tables are right on the water and you can enjoy the view and the atmosphere at the wharf. Food was very very good and service excellent. Thank you H Jonasson
